    I like this, which means it is probably DQ'd.

    White royal oxford - the official business shirting of fall / winter.


    (Also goes great with tweed, right Manton?)

    I could almost not hate that tie w/ a blue shirt. Almost.

    Only way I could not hate that tie would be with a red nose.

    Is it just me or does every outfit posted by Oldog have an unmistakeable scent of, "eff u if you don't like it"?

    I'm somehow reminded of Nordstrom's half yearly sales...

    I don't like this...the collar is badly setted, too high (backward), and those lapels should be further down. The lapels result as beeing to wide, but actually that is not wideness but how it is badly setted. Instead I like how you matched the shirt and the tie.

    Sorry for the crappy Blackberry pics. I'm still contemplating on whether it is justified to buy a real camera just to take "WAYWRN" pictures.
    Anyway, the shirt is light blue twill & the tie is burgundy knitted (Gallo). PS is by you know who...

    Shoes in the spolier & yes those buckles were kept buckled...I'm not Lino Ieluzzi or Ezio Mancini.

    I think that would look better with a solid tie.

    Maybe it is just me, but I can't really bring myself to like any POW check that has too prominent of stripe running through it.

    ^ I tried it w/ a solid tie & it looked too 'flat' & boring.

    You are such a snob.
    Characterizing a Paul Stuart type of style as Nordstrom dreck is really unfair.
    ( No. I don't like the combo either)
